Alumna and Internship Coordinator Kristina Mooney and adjunct instructor Andy Ducett are opening in the two-person exhibition Making Progress at The Gallery at Fox Tax on Saturday November 19, 2011 in Minneapolis. In this exhibition, both artists are combining photography and drawing to re-order stories of our culture’s past, shifting a vague ending into a punchline or a dead end into a new beginning.
Ducett brings new life to found Polaroids by adding new characters, giving a static image a plot and a place where before was only a throwaway moment. In both a serious and playful manner, Andy investigates how we choose to remember events and how the imagined past collides with the reality of what actually occurred.
Mooney, using architecture as the starting point, collapses and rebuilds civilizations in the blink of an eye. Erasing gravity as well as giving new weight, her images give imagination precedence over history. Through layers of linear infrastructure, she portrays a battle between disaster and optimism.
